    I join myself to that request
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Hmmm, I seem to be able to log in with IE, but not with Firefox for some reason. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix? I've tried clearing the cache and deleting cookies, but still no happy twomers!

    PS - the edit is sweet!!
    PPS - the Quick Reply is tiny!!
    PPPS - I've attached an odd looking screenshot (IE 6.something)

    There are some very strange inconsistencies. Opera, konqueror, and firefox all display slightly differently.
    Anyone using opera have an extremely tiny quick reply textbox?

    For some reason when I type an &quot;enter&quot; it does not get displayed in my post. Even when I edit my post and place some enters they won't be there . Also I can not access any of the buttons in the reply box ( smilies, attachment, underline, bold etc etc ). Im using Firefox/1.5.0.4. see: http://bacict.kahosl.be/jan.audenaer...oard/index.php Also I just edited this post to insert the link and my quotes are now replaced by the mnemonic representation of amp followed by quot

    I have a very tiny quick reply box.

    Formatting is also very odd.

    I use IE with XP Home.

    Some of the left column headers where the avatars, names, and other information is, is extremely large, but only for certain members? Maybe something to do with the text they have under their avatar? You can see this in my screenie if you look at valis's post. Gangly Lamb's looks correct and Valis's does not.

    Ahh... the joys of cross-browser compatibility!

    Someone should have invented an HTML Standard. That's why this happens. Because nobody ever invented one. Tsk, tsk.

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    
    Note: The Validator XML support has some limitations. 
    This page is not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional!
    
    Below are the results of checking this document for XML well-formedness and validity. 
    Error Line 460 column 4: end tag for "br" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified.
    <br>
    
    You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">". 
    
    Info Line 460 column 0: start tag was here.
    <br>
    At least it's almost as compliant as it states.

    There's something wrong: The post header is wraps on valis's post. Not a big issue, but it looks odd.

    [edit] I'm using the latest version of Safari, which is basically netscape.
    Oh and I also LOVE the edit window!

    Ok, so I clicked the 'Remember me' box when I was logging in, and I can now log in with FF.

    that's strange, it wraps on opera as well, but not in the same way:
    Code:
    Today,
    04:47 PM
    On konqueror and firefox both my and joeprogrammer's post headers wrap.

    Yes, on my firefox 1.5.0.4 too.

    But I reckon this is only happening on those posts where an image, quote or code tags force horizontal scroll. On all other posts the header is rendered correctly.

    I increased my screen resolution and posts maintained the same wrapping. So, I think this has to do with how PHP is constructing the HTML.

    The posts on the board now are very hard to read, very hard to distinguish from one another, and overall are a major eye sore.

    1. There is not enough space between the actual post text and the signature.
    2. For some reason, the posts stretch all across my screen and I don't believe they used to do this


    And do I have over 4000 posts? I thought I was in the 2K's.
